|President Kupchella issues statement on Virginia Tech tragedy|
We are stunned and saddened about the tragic events that continue to unfold at Virginia Tech. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the many victims, those who were injured as well as those who lost their lives. Our thoughts are also with our friends and colleagues at Virginia Tech. We know they share our commitment to providing a learning, living and working environment that is as safe as possible. When that safe environment is violated, it is a tragedy for everyone. At UND, we are already working to understand what we can take away from this tragedy to help us continue to make our campus as safe as possible. As these next days unfold and we learn more, we will continue to keep the students, parents, staff and faculty at Virginia Tech in our thoughts.
